    I really struggled in reading this book. I kept reading small pieces and trying to make all the story lines coincide, but it was a lot of work and slow. I really wanted to love this book. The synopsis sounded amazing, but in the end it was a lot of work, a lot of confusion and very lit...

    A dystopian thriller set in an America that no longer exist. There is no electricity, no computers, no gasoline and life has reverted back to pioneer/ wild west type living. The regions are self governed by city-states called enclaves and each is primarily self sufficient. Trading is d...

    Enclave By Thomas Locke Since the Great Crash America has descended into an almost medieval feudal system of enclaves and townships. Many areas are nearly lawless as the need to survive at the cost of others becomes the norm. Another who is different is seen as a threat and a small...

    Thomas Locke practices his gifted ability in this complex novel. The distinct old western dialogue and the fun cowboy backdrop made this an enticing read for me. Each and every narrative is as gripping as the one before it, and the characters ground with expressive realistic reactions....

    Science Fiction is not a genre into which I typically delve nor do I find it pleasurable to read. I do, however, enjoy the writings of Davis Bunn and thought I would venture into this story by his pseudonym, Thomas Locke. Venturing into the future by 50 years into an American societ...

    Enclave by Thomas Locke is the first book I've read by the author, but it won't be the last. I found the book to be a slower pace than many books these days--and that's a good thing. It gave me time to get to know the characters in a way that fast-paced books can't. It reminded me o...

    Infused with action-packed scenes, fascinating characters, and a science fiction scenario that seems like it could burst into reality, "Enclave" is an intensely addictive novel from Thomas Locke. Fortunately, I knew what I was getting myself in for when I picked up this novel, so I'd a...

    Upon arrival Enclave, by Thomas Locke, quickly went to my night stand.  Most days I only get to read before bed, so that is the most logical place for it to be. Unbeknownst to me, the book did not remain there.  If you want an author that will grab you, and even your teenage booki...

    Though Thomas Locke is a favorite author of mine, I wasn't sure I would enjoy a more dystopian setting even if he were writing it. I am happy to say that ENCLAVE exceeded my hopes for an entertaining novel. Co-leads Caleb and Kevin have different backgrounds but are able to work tog...

    Enclave is not from my most go to genre. I did have a hard time in the beginning trying to understand what was going on. After about a quarter of the way through, I caught on and started enjoying what I was reading. In the end, I found it refreshing to read something new, different and...

    ?Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them.? This quote by William Shakespeare comes to mind as I finish Enclave by Thomas Locke(Davis Bunn). Indeed, Kevin and Caleb, two of the major players of this dystopian scenario, are just going abo...

    Enclave was... It was like The Last Ship meets X-Men while being tinged with the Wild West! That sounds awesome, right? Well, it was awesome! Dystopian and post-apocalyptic story lovers, Enclave needs to be added to your TBR immediately! The story is told from the ...

    I started this book with good intentions. The synopsis of the book had me intrigued along with the book cover. A society destroyed and then reborn into small enclaves of people. Gone is the states and in its place townships.  The book starts off well and has me intrigued and captiv...

    With all the lawlessness of a Wild West tale, this intense story is a stark look at a future where hope is rare and fear is rampant. (complete review posted on Hope by the Book: https://www.hopebythebook.com/blog1/2...) ...

    A fast-paced dystopian adventure My rating is 4.5 stars As with many dystopian novels, the world of Enclave was a militant society ruled by the strong preying on the weak. An entire section of the population was targeted for experiments to see how those in power could exploit the...

    DNF I think a lot of people will enjoy this book, because it's a post-apocalyptic type of novel, but also with a sort of X-men element that will garner interest from people like...well, like me. The thing is, even with this premise, this book was very difficult for me to get into. T...

    I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review of its merits. I must admit up front that I am a fan of Thomas Locke, so I had high expectations coming in. His writing under various names, has engaged me for years. So, when I began this book, I assum...

    Enclave by Thomas Locke is an entertaining read. Once halfway through it, I was excited. The plot felt alive. However, the beginning left me with so many questions. I wasn't sure why or how the book started out the way it did. It wasn't until later, the stuff finally made sense. I enjo...

    Enclave, by Thomas Locke, is a dystopian novel that takes place many years in the future. Almost 100 years after the Great Crash and the country is basically cities governing themselves with very little support from the federal government. Kevin and his mother are part of a group that ...

    I wasn?t sure at first on whether to request this book or not, but I?m glad I did! The story was interesting and how can you say no to a book with a cover like this one? Enclave follows two characters : Kevin and Caleb. Kevin risk his life to help others but when he gets caught ...

    What caught my eye initially was the cover. I like dystopian themes, which is probably why I enjoy The Walking Dead and other zombie stories. To read about a society attempting to rebuild after a global disaster is interesting. Keep in mind, Enclave doesn't have zombies, but that doesn...

    This is the first Thomas Locke book I?ve read. I was intrigued by the look of the cover. The story sounded like one I would be interested in. I like dystopian novels and this seemed to fit that type. I liked it at the start but quickly became so confused. There seemed to be so many p...

    So I hate reading books out of order, like a LOT. Consequently, my favorite thing about Goodreads is that it (usually) tells me when a book is part of a series. According to Goodreads, Enclave is NOT such a book. The problem is ? it felt like a book that was part of a series. Ther...

    This books takes elements of science fiction and dystopian themes and combines them into an original story. I have not read anything quite like it before. I am hoping that this is the first in a series and that the story will continue to develop. ...
